Description Khym Chanur 2004-12-02 06:27:34 UTC
Several times I've accidently protected or unprotected a page, since with the
font size and window width I have "Watch this page" is directly above "Protect
this page" in the footer.  Fortunatly, I've always caught myself when I did
this, but I might not cath myself next time, and others might make the same
mistake.  Since protecting/unprotecting is a rather large change to the state of
a page, doing show should go to a page with a "Are you sure?" button.

Protection/unprotection already does prompt for confirmation.
